I have been looking for a great Italian restaurant in the Inner West for sometime and i have found it! The food was delicious! We had the Arancini balls, duck liver pate, beef carpaccio and the duck & porcini ragu.
The arancini balls were so good, my partner and I ordered another serve!
The dishes tasted home cooked, all the ingredients were fresh and the dishes were made with love.
The service was great and food came out quick. I will definitely be coming back!

What a gem in little Italy on Norton Street! Gourmet Italian. The dishes we tried were in a league of their own. The house red was surprisingly good.

We had a great experience at the Capriccio Osteria last night. The food was fantastic. Our favourites were the freshly shucked oysters and squid inked spaghetti. Staff were very attentive. We would highly recommend this place.

Loved it! The food was delicious, service & attention to our needs was excellent! As we were First Table patrons (table booking at 6pm), thought we’d be out of the restaurant earlish! Not so! After dinner went downstairs to the bar & continued to enjoy the buzzy atmospher! Would definitely recommend Capriccio Ostetia!

Terrible. We were refused pudding for dessert because it would take 15 minutes to cook, and apparently full-paying customers needed a table. We had only been sitting for 55 mins in total at that point and hadn’t had entrees, so it wasn’t like we were taking abnormally long. On the plus side, the cauliflower was nice.

First bad experience I’ve had on first table and it may very well be the last. Shame.

Food was ok, uses low quality truffle in my opinion. The best dish was the Raviolli, worst dish was the Prosciutto Di Parma (basically prosciutto on crackers). Service was really bad. Had 3 different servers from start to finish. We were still eating our entrees and the bought out the mains. They requested we order our mains right away, couldn’t help but feel like they wanted to turn the table as quick as possible as we booked thru First Table. The whole thing felt rushed and impersonal. A bit disappointing overall. Shame as we were really looking forward to a lovely night.

What a little gem this place is. From the moment we walked in until we left with full stomachs, dining at Capriccio Osteria was a fantastic experience. We were welcomed with a big smile and got a cute little table outside. The service was fantastic and really fast. Dishes started arriving less then 10min after we ordered them. My favourite dishes of the night were the arranchini and the evenings special, a grilled octopus! But everything we ordered was delicious and beautifully presented. I'll definitely be back!

Our experience was very positive. The food was very good, as was the service overall. They would however be better allocating the wait staff to sections as we had multiple different staff asking us the same questions. Only one comment, when I came to pay the bill, they told me the ice cream (a food item) was not included in the First Table off food deal. We would definitely dine there again.

The food was overpriced. The service was good and it was a nice restaurant in layout and design, just disappointing with the food as it could have been better.

Don’t usually write reviews but felt compled after last night - the food was definitely sub par: starters - olives were bitter, prosciutto was way too salty and dry. Mains - the swordfish was okay but seasoning wasn’t too be found and the sides were just a couple of oily fennel’s, the cannelloni was tasteless and dry inside, and the ravioli was swimming in oil.
We were seated upstairs inside - everyone was wearing their jackets and scarfs as it was freezing, the lady serving us didn’t know what dishes were, for example, she didn’t know what a cannelloni was, not sure where these good reviews are coming from ?
